HIPS Pistol Pouch

Wilson Combat HIPS

Wilson Combat introduced a belt pouch that allows you to carry a firearm virtually in plain view without anyone actually seeing the gun.  The HIPS, or Hide In Plain Sight, concealment pouch is a nylon belt pouch that contains an internal, adjustable holster that fits a wide variety of handguns.

The pouch itself is made from rugged 1000 denier Cordura, meaning this holster pouch will likely last longer than you.  Zippers are YYK.

Among the handguns that the HIPS will fit are:

  • 1911 compact (4″ barrel or shorter)
  • Glock pistols of the 19/23 size
  • Smith & Wesson M&P 9/40 and 45 Compact
  • Smith & Wesson SD series
  • Browning Hi-Power
  • and many more

The HIPS holster pouch can be had in plain black or black with a gray front.  The front of the pouch has a second zippered compartment for the storage of a flashlight, extra magazine or other EDC equipment.
